I found a love, sweet and young
Out in the big open
Deep in the land of stars that shine
Bright like the heart she wore
I spent a lifetime on that road
She spent a life in town
And I said c'mon, she said right
Let's head for higher ground
Let's go shall we
On through the majesty
Let's go, you'd never know
But this was made for you and me, shall we
We hit the road, the big highway
With a heart full of soul and fire
Making our way through America
In a ford on a two-cent tire
Let's go shall we
On through the majesty

Let's go, you'd never know
But this was made for you and me
We laid down under stars
Under the dead of night
There in a field of wildflowers
Baby we finally made things right
Where no bands of gold or
Diamond rings or wished of well could hold
More than our hearts of good intentions
More than our promise told

Let's go shall we
On through the majesty
Let's go, you'd never know it
But this was made for you and me, shall we

Not bad, but these songs sound more or less the same.

 
I agree.
Okay Bill & Rebecca, this is really outstanding, so let's hear some more from this album please!
I will give this an 8 as a first rating.  I expect it will be bumped up next time I hear it.

Nice.  Very nice.

Tooooo long.

For those who might not know, Vieux is the son of Grammy winning Ali Farka Touré. 

I saw Ali play a couple of times and WonderLizard is perfectly correct in that he is carrying on the skill and sound of his father. 

Marvellous stuff

Such a happy space for me. 
Stopped me in my tracks.  What an amazing talent- to invoke a setting, a feeling, a culture, even the heat of the desert from a world away. 
Just listening to this in background for awhile not really paying attention  and then it hit me, this is a very beautiful melodic piece of music.
